Sometimes I feel like my loot posts are just cheap filler (not that that would ever stop me :P)… but regardless, if there was ever a time for a loot post, it’s now.
Today I present akiba loot!
Sadly no… no figures. In the end, given my shrinking available display space and the fact that I’ve pretty much ordered everything I really really want… I just couldn’t find anything I felt like buying. This trip got me back to my manga roots ^^; All told, probably somewhere between ７万円 and ８万円 spent on goodies (though I do have ～１５０００円 unaccounted for orz… did I really spend that much more on food/travel? ^^;;;). Anyhow, let’s take a closer look…
1. Code Geass Complete Best – all OP and ED songs from the series. Also included all those postcards surrounding feena’s face and some story booklets.
3. Feena dakimakura cover – came with the latest G’s Festival that went on sale the last day I was in Tokyo ^^. Nothing on the backside, which kinda sucks, then again, for 1/4 the price, expected as much.
4. Evangelion: Ikari Shinji Ikusei Keikau Vol 6
5. Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu Vol 7
6. GUNNM Vol 6 – Finally! Have had the previous 5 forever.
7. Mahou Sensei Negima Vol 25
8. Some pins that came with an okazu purchase at K-Books ^^;
9. Ikkitousen Vol 14
10. Poster that came free with the CDs (#12)
11. Some mamori from Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gū – One for traffic safety and the other just for general goodness (or was it against evil? hmmm ^^;;)
12. Trance Anime CDs – Got 4 CDs by Exit Trance – CODE SPEED Anime Trance BEST, SPEED Anime Trance BEST 5, SPEED Anime Trance Ecstasy, Animage 30th anniversary Anime Dance request countdown, and umauma dekiru trance wo tsukuttemita 3 smune de yoyuu deshita.
13. Nagasarete Airantou Vol 14
14. These extra case covers came with my Idol Master purchase (#21)
15. To Aru Majutsu no Index Vol 3
16. Kimi no iru Machi Vol 3
17. Figma & Nendoroid Cycles from WonHobby 9
18. Shakugan no Shana Light Novels Vol 5 & 6 – Used books from Book Off – both of them together cost… 210 yen ^_^
19. Toradora Light Novel Vol 1
20. Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu Light Novel Vol 1
21. The iDOLM@STER ~ Missing Moon – Was lucky that it was released while I was in Japan, decided to go with chihaya, azusa and ritsuko. Miki is a rival idol working for another company in this version… perhaps there’s a way to unlock her? Haven’t done any research at all nor have I played any previous version… just got Chihaya through her first audition ^^;;
22. Asu no Yoichi Vol 1-8 – been liking the anime, so decided to start up the manga.
23. Nanoha StikerS THE COMICS Vol 1 – yes, comics… with an ‘s’ ^^;; Also from book off… 350 yen used! Wasn’t familiar with the title and had a hard time finding it in akiba, but getting it used turned out to be much cheaper ^^
24. G’s Festival Vol 15 – Feena dakimakura (#3) included! Also came with a mouse pad (not oppai :P) and a cell phone cleaner.
25. Fate stay/Night Vol 6-8
26. Majikano Vol 1
27. Makenki! Vol 1
28. ef Vol 7
29. Kemeko Deluxe Vol 2-5
30. DAIKICHI! ^_^
31. Sekirei Vol 7
32. Doujin Work Vol 1-6 – I love hiroyuki’s work. Already read through Vol 1-3 while I was in Japan.
33. Haruhi gachapon – Got this little guy in either bic or yodobashi camera ^^; Makes a mikuru squeal or haruhi proclaiming, “iwayuru hitotsu no moeyouso!”
34. Final Fantasy Dissidia – Haven’t had much time to play yet orz. Busy training chihaya ^^;;;
35. Erika Sendo cushion cover – not sure what I’m gonna do with this ^^; Backside is kinda boring with just the Fortune Arterial logo, but decided to get this instead of the other one because erika was being too ero ^^;; This one I can actually keep on my bed if I get a cushion…
36. Replicant 2009-2010 calendar – figure calendar that came with Replicant (#40)
37. Another free poster from my CD purchases. This one is macademi wasshoi?
38. Yoake mae yori ruri iro na -Moonlight Cradle- Bookmarks – came free with manga purchases at Gamers.
39. Asu no Yoichi… cards? – forget what they were called, but these little card things came with my asu no yoichi manga purchase. Blank on the back and have a gamers logo on the bottom.
40. Replicant – was in a book store and happened upon this magazine. Full of great pics of figures, both pvc and some garage kits, happened to include aforementioned figure calendar (#36).
I guess this would be #41, two ef wall scrolls… they were bundled together at… animate I believe. Was unable to finder anything cheaper… all the others were going for 5000, 6000 yen… each!! This pair I got for 5000 so basically half off the usual price.
Compared to my other wallscrolls, the color is much more vivid and they appear more sharp… though that just may be because my old wallscrolls are old and dirty ^^;;
Haven’t decided where to put them, so for now just hanging over eva wallscrolls ^^;
So that’s it, continue on if you’d like a detailed look at some of the above items, but nothing new from here on :P
Was happy to finally get my hands on these charms from gsc… had kinda forgotten them but saw them on the way out of animate on my last day.
Unfortunately these pics suck. ^^; I’ll have to take some better ones later, but in the meantime… you can make out slightly more detail if you click for the full rez.
Some were sold out like the Bardiche riot blades, but I already spent way too much on these three anyway ^^; They ended up being 2800 yen each.
Nice chrome finish, wish they used the same for PVC figures more often (like Alter’s Vita’s graf eisen).
Replicant is the only figure magazine I’ve picked up… before I always thought there wasn’t really any reason with all the info available on the web. Found this baby at the store and if it weren’t for the price I’d probably think otherwise ^^;
Gorgeous pics and, according to the cover at least, it also contains pics of garage kits. 1/4 kanu is insanity.
Wonder how long kanu will continue getting all the attention ^^;
Ah yes, don’t mind the gunnm manga, needed something to hold the magazine down ^^;;; Err and a little late, but I guess red mech chick above is nsfw ^^;;
Practically the whole magazine is just full page after full page of figure pics.
Service for James :P
Had a nice section that focused on specific sculptors, MAJOCO, above.
Some how to stuff that looked like it could be useful…
A nice look at some Lucky Star releases.
Fate always merits her own coverage ^_^
Fold out Lily image… felt strangely perverted unfurling it ^^;;;
Will come back to the calendar that was included with the mag :P
Just about right for me. No bare eyes, not super ero, and feena is kawaiiii~
Again, for the record, this (NSFW) is not what I do with my dakimakura, despite the similar handle ^^;;
Speaking of the magazine, great images from the game, makes me want to get a copy…
Kawaii character bakkari~
Some full page images later in the magazine…
Being the newb hobbyist I am, there’s a lotta troublesome flash still on the thing ^^;;
Attended the event with an uninterested friend which is why I have 2 of everything ^^; Next up… need to get a razor so I can do the nendoroid bike properly ^^;
Here’s one of the songs that made one of the CDs an instaget for me – a mix of yuukyuu no tsubasa, the ED of the final episode of the first season of the anime.
Another one of my favorite songs remixed, I Bless Thy Life -
Both these songs are found on the recently released SPEED アニメトランス エクスタシー (SPEED anime trance ecstasy). Nut sure how prices are elsewhere but, here it is at amazon.co.jp.
Other well known songs didn’t quite tickle my fancy as much, perhaps you’ll enjoy them… for example, motteke! se-ra- fuku -
That one’s from CODE SPEED アニメ トランス BEST (CODE SPEED Anime Trance BEST). Also at amazon. Also on the CD, god knows, harehare yukai, butter-fly, hishoku (?) no sora, harete hareruya, eternal blaze… there’s 20 tracks on both this and the previously listed cd.
But yeah, OP and ED mixed from all sorts of series. Between all the CDs I bought, I’ve got things from Rosario + Vampire, sekirei (<3 ^^)… err wait one sec… i love the sekirei OP so I must link that mix too…
That one’s on SPEED アニメ トランス BEST 5 (SPEED Anime Trance BEST 5, amazon).
Anyhow, back to the list of series covered… higurashi no naku koro ni, code geass, toheart, school days, lucky star, the idolmaster, pia carrot, chaos;head, nanoha strikers, zero no tsukaima rondo, bleach, nogizaka haruka no himitsu, myself;yourself, fate/stay night, gundam seed destiny, macross frontier, gundam 00, keroro gunsou… ahhh so nice ^^
Lotsa good stuff, wish my shots and photoshop skills were at that level ^^;
As you can see the back is pretty lame, but erika’s on the other side to greet’cha.
So there ya have it… still have a buncha pics from my trip to post, but I also want to get back to figure reviews ^^;;; At any rate, lewt post complete, TSUGI!
If you happen to have any questions about anything or want more pics of something I didn’t cover in detail, feel free to ask. I may be a little slow to respond if it’s pics you want, but I’ll get ‘em up eventually :P
